Hi,

i am am building a sound kit: I own a used SD442 and plan to run it into a multitrack rec (using the preamps, limiter etc on the 442 line in from the 442.

any opinion as to an HP-S82 or f8 for reliability, price and function?

thx,

mike

If your work is mostly bag-based then prob F8, if you like the interface and ergonomics.  You might find yourself using it w/o the 442--way lighter rig that way, esp if you are mostly recording wirelesses (so the pres don't matter).   You could use the 442 on a cart rig with the recorder when you have to opportunity to work that way with boom ops, and can use those nice pres and limiters on wired mics.

F8 for bag work. The HSP82 is actually nice but big and the timecode generator in the F8 is much better. I wanna say the Tascam is 100ppm vs the F8's 0.2ppm which means the HSP82 really needs something external for timecode. As for weight the Tascam pushes 8 pounds versus the F8 which breaks 2 lbs. Add the 442 (4.5lbs) and your still under the HSP82 for weight. Lots of F8 users are pairing with a 442 or a 552.

Yes. The transmitter is is biger than Lectro ifb, but lightweight, and usable is two mono transmitter.
If you setup the receiver to mono mode, and fix it the pan some side, you have two chanel of audio.
My setup is:
Left -Boom +slate mic
Right - mono mix
The pan pot is fixed with gaffer tape, for director or script supervisor.
My boom op is always changing the sides.

I have 18pieces of receiver mixed type: M2 -M3.
The M2-receivers are 5years old.
Always on the ground, somethimes in the river. There is nothing problem with.

I use a booster ampligier with the transmitter. This is a handmade 300-500mw antenna booster. Made in Hungarian Technical University.
If you want i will send some picture.
But this booster is dangerous for the receivers! Must use 1-2 meter distance from tmy lectro receivers. I use this just in cart.
